Sheffield Town Hall & Sheffield University Wedding - Jenny & Chris

Posted on 17th November 2013 by Mark Tierney

A beautiful vintage wedding theme turned Chris and Jenny's big day in Sheffield into a navy, cream and lace extravaganza. The couple's wedding ceremony at Sheffield Town Hall saw the stunning bride walk down the aisle in a beautiful A-line dress with spaghetti straps, a sweetheart neckline and lots of lace detailing. The look was completed with a fetching birdcage veil and rustic woodland bouquet. Chris wore a cream shirt with a delicate blue pattern. A local piano player provided the first notes of the day for what would turn out to be a very musically-focused occasion.

Although transport was provided for the guests in the form of a cream and navy vintage bus, the bride and groom chose to walk from the ceremony to the reception. As they made their way through the city centre, the newly-weds were happy to stop and pose for tourist photos. However, as they walked through the crowded park, it was clear that they only had eyes for each other. Upon nearing their destination, the couple recreated the “Sheffield Snog” an artwork by the famous Sheffield artist, Pete McKee

In their reception room at Sheffield University, pretty pale blue hydrangeas made for unique and interesting centrepieces and the magnificent wedding cake was included a vintage lace-styled icing. Drinks were held before the meal in the sunshine-filled grounds outside and it made for a truly a magical Summer afternoon.

The highlight of the day was surely a surprise for the bride planned by Chris and his father-in-law. Unbeknownst to the Jenny, her dad had been secretly teaching Chris to play guitar so that he could serenade his bride at their wedding! It was a huge success and very emotional. The last tunes of the day were provided by the live band, who enticed the whole crowd onto the dance floor before bringing the day to an exciting musical finish.
